July 2010

Today was an awesome day in sewing world.  I got a ton accomplished with high hopes for another successful day tomorrow! 

Here are 3 of the lanyards I completed today…I still have about 6 on my list (and growing), but I love these.  One is going to a buyer on Etsy, one to a 16 year old that is in love with funky fabrics, and one to my BF for a gift! 
Thanks so much ladies…hope you love your new accessory!

This Strap Wrap is going to my JuJu.  Thanks so much JuJu and for being such an amazing support for all of my random creations.  I know your going to love it!  I love you!  Very Much!


Baby Ella’s sweet onesie is absolutely one of my new favorites.  Mackenna ordered this sweet onesie from me for a great friend of her’s and for sure wanted the rufflebutt on the back…How could you not love those ruffles?

I love the green and purple combination and think this is super sweet!  Thanks so much Mackenna!  I hope the mommy-to-be loves it too!!!

What a special honor it was when one of my all-time favorite student’s wanted me to do create some custom lanyards for her softball team!!!  Matti was in my class the last two years and I ADORE HER!  Seriously, I thought many days how I hoped and prayed that my Maggie Moo would grow up and be like Matti!  She is a gem and I was blessed to have gotten to teach her the past two years. 

Matti, I hope you loved your lanyards!  Thank you for allowing me to create these for your team!  I adore you!

Are you ready for some sweet goodness??

Meet Lyndsey from Cards by Clemy.

Lyndsey is a beautiful, young, amazing woman that is so unbelievably crafty.  How do I know this about her…She is one of my very best friends!  Lyndsey and I met when she was assigned to be my Student Teacher.  I knew she was a cool girl when I told her I like to make clothes for my daughter and she thought that was pretty awesome!  Little did I know later, that she would help me so much with ideas, staying positive, and be the reason behind so many of my crafts.  She was the reason the lanyards ever came along, the keyfobs are in existence, and that my fabrics are half as organized as they are.  I love and adore that I was with her when she purchased her first sewing machine and watching her create makes my heart do flips.

She makes the most precious custom greeting cards for any occasion.  {did I mention they are priced so reasonably?}  I haven’t bought a store greeting card since Lyndsey created her first card.  Her cards are so precious and I love to send a sweet card.  I truly hope that people will continue to send cards to one another.  I know with all the technology now days it is just “easier” but I love nothing more than a card with someone’s writing telling me how they are and encouraging me.  That love has always come from my Granny.

Lyndsey is one of my biggest fans and I am so happy to return the feeling! 

She was sweet enough to create a special birthday banner for a very special little girl’s (my maggie moo) 3rd birthday party this weekend.  I. Am. In. Love.  This banner is for sure going to be the highlight of her party.   It is so verstile that we will for sure use this year after year.  It is created on tough card stock and bound with ribbon.  So precious!
